As has been discussed in several threads, a reflection at the rim of Bonneville opposite to the Spirit rover is caused by the Heat Shield landed there.

Here (http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/spirit/pancam/2004-03-12/2P132398621EFF1800P2285L6M1.JPG) is a better look at the heat shield. With the panoramic camera one can see more than a mere reflection.
